Chef Rika's Sake-steamed Salmon, Potatoes, and Clams

2m 33s

In this episode, we'll be cooking with sake -- it's more than just a drink! Steaming salmon and asari clams with sake gives those foods the savory umami flavor of the sake, for a dish with a delicious depth. We'll also be making a dessert with sake: Chef Rika's own original recipe for Castella sponge cake, featuring the light, fragrant aroma of sake, and coarse sugar to provide a crunchy accent.
